Reading is our number 1 priority! In class we love to read and value the knowledge and the skills it gives us! Reading literacy is crucial to functioning well in adult life. We are having a half-termly 'Bug Club' competition, where the child who has read the most books receives a reward!
This term our topic has had a history theme and we have been studying ' Britain's Settlement by the Anglo-Saxons and Scots'. The children have produced lots of wonderful 'historical' writing, created illuminated letters and outstanding homework projects!
In literacy we have created newspaper articles based on the events in Beowulf.
We are learning how to calculate the perimeter and area of simple 2D shapes and compound rectilinear shapes.
We have had lots of fun investigating and making different shapes to calculate the perimeter. We have been using Lego, cubes and geoboards.
We have developed our measuring skills by using rulers to measure different simple and rectilinear shapes.
Using the book ‘Spaghetti and Meatballs for All! A mathematical story’ we have deepened our skills by investigating word based problems.
Science: Our New topic is : Properties of Materials
We will be learning to:
Our focus will be studying Scripture that shows how we are called, by God, to belong to His family. We will learn of the rights and responsibilities of being 'called'.
